And It Came to Pass...

(Read Luke 1:26-38)

An angel of the Lord spoke a word to Mary in a season.  

Then, there was some waiting on her part. 

(Read Luke 2:1-7)

"And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered."  (Luke 2:1, NKJV)

Did you notice?  "And it came to pass..." [emphasis mine]

(Read Luke 2:15-20)

So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.”  (Luke 2:15, NKJV)

How about this part?  "...see this thing that has come to pass..." [emphasis mine]

What you are you waiting for God to bring to pass for you?

Know that when God speaks a word to you in a particular season, it will come to pass.  It probably won't happen overnight.  It may be days, weeks, months, or even years.  Be patient though. 

In just the right way and at just the right time, God will bring it to pass in your life.  Remember, He is no respecter of persons.  What He does for one person, He will do for another person.  He also keeps His promises.   

"For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."  (2 Corinthians 1:20, NKJV)

Neither does He lie.  It's not part of His true character.  He blesses His children. 

"God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.  Has He said, and will He not do?  Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?  Behold, I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot reverse it."  (Numbers 23:19-20, NKJV)
